More hay

Despite the 80 degree day on Friday, I had to go get my second load of hay. 17 bales, plus the 21 we already have purchased. This should get us into January with what we already have. We need one more load of 17 to get into March. Hopefully we can stretch to make the last load last till the pastures have had a chance to fully recover. Keeping the cows off of the pasture just as it comes out of dormancy is tough. They want all that green grass and we want to stop feeding hay. We will see how long we can make it go.

The good news is the new (to me) truck and trailer are doing well. I was burning more fuel and getting only 8 bales before. Now I get 17 per trip and do so in style.
